Last Days Showing Charles Eyck

EyckWILLEMSTAD -- Last days showing the historic retrospective Charles Eyck…'na 60 jaar op Doesji Korsouw!'

This unique show will be closing on January 15th, so if you have not yet been able to come by and see it, please do take some time to plan a visit!

The exhibition shows a body of work made 6o years ago during and after his 9 months stay on the island in 1952-1953. There are charcoal sketches and oil paintings depicting different scenes and landscapes on the island and also truly striking portraits, like for instance of the late shon Dodo Boskaljon, founder of the Curaçao Philharmonic Orchestra and a self-portrait with straw-hat. Also on display is his first locally self-painted and produced tile sculpture. Art books and several clippings bring this era and exceptional artist back to life! All work displayed is on loan from several private collections in the Netherlands as well as local and there is also a precious painting done in 1920, which clearly shows a different style, a different generation!

We are also proud to share with you that “Veerpontje”, which is depicted on the attached poster, has been selected to be part of the Caribbean Crossroads of the World exhibition which will be held coming April in the recently opened Perez Art Museum in Miami, Fla.

We look forward to your visit and to guiding you into the wonderful world of Charles Eyck. Starting January 18 we will feature a photography exhibition by Sinaya Wolfert to celebrate the presentation of her new book Músika Curaçao. A great many local musicians are portrayed in this celebration of Music!
